Draft service into a becker glass at Bruery Provisions in Orange, CA.
A: Slightly hazy, light amber color with one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Heavy, nearly-continuous sheets of lacing remain on the glass.
S: Floral and piney hops keep pace with each other, and also strike a balance with husky but dry crystal malt.
T: Begins almost dry, with intense rose flower and mild orange citrus hop aromatics. Acidity is restrained, appropriate, into the drying middle where hop flavors become more green herbaceous and a thread of toasted malt emerges. The finish is easy, mildly bitter with rustic malt that peaks late.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, wet and balanced on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: A world-class pale ale that possesses a remarkable and unusual hops profile that is worth remembering (and hopefully reproducing.) Not exactly West Coast, but obsessively dry-hopped and focused on appealing aromatic hop qualities. It is difficult to recollect a more floral ale, whose other qualities bear such marks of fine craftsmanship.

Pours a surprisingly dark orange for a beer that is only 4.6%. Thin head, white. Slides down the glass, not much head or retention, but the burnt orange is really what is impressive to me. The smell is a fair funky hop presence. Funky citrra nelson type aroma. Grassy and loads of citrus.
Light mouthfeel in terms of malt body, the hops are flavorful, and not all that bitter, enjoyment maximized, thank you. Allows the pine to come out, you get equal mixes of citrus, tropical fruit and piney mild menthol. Very easy to drink, this makes it tough to go back to the usual stuff at the store. I think the carbonation is a little lower than their other humulus beers, that might be what is causing the oily slickness that a lot of people are talking about. Its far from a negative.
Actually pretty complex when you think about it. Orange, pineapple, pine. Yum Yum.
